Ballots have been posted in to the New York City Board of Elections in the name of dead voters, according to the New York Post.
The elections board received an absentee ballot from a Frances Reckhow of Staten Island, but as it turned out Frances Reckhow had died in 2012, according to an obituary filed with The Staten Advance.
Earlier, CNN had cited the Broward County Election Commission in reporting that Florida election officials and law enforcement officials have disclosed an attempt to register about 50 deceased voters to vote in the US presidential election.
Moreover, another absentee ballot was mailed from a Gertrude Nizzere, born in 1919, who also turned out to be dead, according to the Board of Elections.
After the incident, all data has been transferred to the police and Staten Island District Attorney Michael McMahon’s office for investigation.
